About Cathy Bittrick
Meet Barry and Cathy Bittrick. We live on Mona Lake and know how much fun it is to live on water. We've lived in West Michigan for over 40 years and although Barry is a "Cheesehead" from Wisconsin, once in awhile I can get him to cheer for the Lions! Our favorite restaurants are Dockers, The Deck, Hearthstone and The Lakehouse, but we're only minutes from Grand Haven and Kirby's Grill House is also a favorite. Although we both still work in Grand Rapids, we love to get home in the summer and hop on the pontoon and tour around the lake. If you need anything, we live right around the corner. (To be compliant with Michigan Real Estate License Law, I am a Licensed Real Estate Broker with RE/MAX SunQuest Realty at 6255 28th St. S.E., Grand Rapids, Michigan 49546 and this is our personal investment property) Hope you enjoy renting this fun beach house!
Cathy Bittrick purchased this Cottage in 2016
Why Cathy Bittrick chose Norton Shores
We chose Mona Lake because it has access to Lake Michigan, but even on the weekends, the lake doesn't have a lot of traffic, so it's safe for jet skiers, and boating, great fishing and the most beautiful sunsets on Lake Michigan. The lake also has a sandy bottom so we like that. Come and make some great memories. We hope you enjoy our home away from home.
What makes this Cottage unique
The kitchen is all remodeled with granite counters, tile flooring, new appliances, new carpet in the living room. New king-size bed in one bedroom and new twin beds in second bedroom. Pull-out couch in living room gives lots of room for another couple or children. Great lawn for volley ball and beautiful lakefront swimming. Michigan Adventure Water Park is right up US-31 and Lake Michigan Beaches, USS Silversides Submarine Tours, Art Festivals, Bike have it all!!
100% refund if cancelled at least 60 days before arrival date.
This was the perfect cottage for our family of four! We spent many days on Mona lake as we brought our boat with us. We also spent time on the beach just across the lake. Heading out to the channel to see the sunset on lake Michigan was the highlight for me.
Barry and Cathy were incredible hosts! They were present when you needed yet incredibly respectful of space. It was extra special they took us for a treat at the tiki bar!
For those bringing a boat, note that the lake can get choppy due to being so close and connected to lake Michigan. Recommend really good ropes for tying up! It was great to have the ability to get gas right on the lake at the tiki bar.
The air conditioning was a great touch as it was very hot while we stayed over the 4th of July. The house had a ton of charm and truly fit our needs of a small kitchen and a washer and dryer.
Our middle School and High School sons were able to fish right off the end of the dock!
Our family had a fantastic time! Highly recommend this fantastic lake cottage.
Family of five fun vacation June 2019
Just as described. This lake front cottage is great for young children. Our 5 and 3 year old were able to jump off dock and climb stairs back up. Dock is also setup for a boat. Owners are wonderful and responsive. We had a minor issue with the TV and they resolved it the same day! Everything worked properly. Kitchen was fully stocked to prepare our meals, outside gas grill worked great as well. We only needed to get groceries. Kathy and Barry are fantastic they go out of their way to make sure your stay is what you expect. From the fun boat ride to Lake Michigan to hanging out at the Yacht club. They are also great tour guides and can recommend many things to do.
There is public beach that is directly across the lake. It is only a 5 minute drive and its great for young kids. Public access beaches on Lake Michigan are also very close.
We had a great week long stay, would highly recommend!
Some of the amenities listed were missing or broken but even with that we had a very relaxing week with family. The grandbabies loved the beach and kayaking. Walmart & Meijer are within minutes for shopping convenience. Thank you for having us.
Great little lake cottage
The views are amazing, the cottage is perfect for a get away. My family and I loved every minute there.
My family and I had a great time. The house was perfect for our needs. Staying right on the water was the relaxing vacation we needed. I will definitely be back.
Thanks for your kind words, Elizabeth, and we certainly hope you and your family will visit us again soon. So glad our little beach house was perfect for your stay. Kindly, Cathy
My husband and I spent the week after Labor Day at this charming cottage. It is very well appointed, and provides all the necessities to make our stay super comfortable. The sleeping provisions were comfortable, the living space was wide open, and the wall of glass with sliders made the lakeside a natural part of the living space.
The kitchen was also great with granite counters and appliances that were up-to-date and easy to use.
Convenient to Muskegon restaurants, points of interest and shopping; as well as a short trip to all the fun that Grand Haven has to share. Located close to several parks, some with beaches, others with great trails.
We did a lot of fishing off the dock, and had luck with bluegill, perch, catfish and even a large mouth bass.
The only downside was the weather: it is Michigan! Quite cool and windy most days, so unable to make comment about the swimming or paddling.
So happy to have you join us and wish we could have waved a magic wand for warmer weather. August and September can be quite unpredictable in Michigan, and we hope you'll join us again earlier in the season. Thank you so much for your kind words. Kindly, Cathy
